Piper and Boyd on the Tornado

You may already be aware that a number of tornados struck the Twin Cities area earlier this week. You may also be aware that John Piper attempted to explain the tornados as God's providence warning the ELCA (who was meeting about the issue of homosexuality) not to tolerate sin. It even made it on the evening news.

There is a lot I could say about this, and if you've read this blog with any regularity you know how much I think Piper's article is in poor taste. A resonate with Greg Boyd's sentiment when he says, "I feel I need to offer a public response, if only to remind non-Christians that not all Christians think like this."

Read his full response here.

UPDATE: Tony Jones and Scot McKnight (briefly) both comment on this as well.

As much as I love Piper, I think Boyd is absolutely right in his observations.However I don't think it's right that any congregation, weather Lutheran or just a group of individuals claiming to follow Christ, can actively participate in homosexuality and still love Jesus. Homosexuals need to wage war against their sin and pursue Christ.
